Mmegi Online :: Over 200 For Miss Global Auditions








This year's auditions will go down as the biggest and most attended in the history of the competition with such a record number of aspiring girls.

At the end of the day, ten girls whose names are still being withheld by the organisers were selected. The ten selected girls are expected to undergo another audition among themselves such that they can be trimmed to five.

The five to be selected will join other contestants selected during the Gaborone and Maun auditions held in the past three weeks. The Miss Global Botswana Finals will be held in Gaborone on September 1. Coordinated by Fatima Gabatshwane, Miss Global International Beauty Pageant finals will take place on September 22 2012 at the newly built Montego Bay Convention Centre in Rose Hall, Montego Bay in Jamaica.

According to the organisers of the pageant, over 200 aspiring beauty queens converged on the spacious hotel for what appeared a lot like, well, a cattle call.A number of contestants  the Showtime correspondent spoke to said they had hoped to be given the chance to strut their stuff to impress, but it was not to be. Kgomotso Uyama from South Africa and  Mark Themba of Francistown were the judges and never bothered wasting the time of the contestants.

Those  contestants who were not showing the characteristics that the judges were looking for  during the interviews  were sent packing straight away.The contestants came from as far as Maitengwe and  had started queuing as early as 3:00 pm for the event which started around 6.30 pm.
